Johannesburg: A new smartphone app, named 'Am I going down?' has recently been developed that can calculate the odds of people's plane crashing.

According to the CNN, Nic Johns from Vanilla Pixel said that it was inspired by his co-founder and wife, Julie, who was chronically afraid of flying, so the app was actually just meant to reassure the nervous flyers, News24.com reported.

Using real flight statistics to analyse flight safety, the app basically serves as a way of proving that the chances of people being involved in a plane crash are highly unlikely.

Johns did admit, however, that the launch of the app comes at a bit of an awkward time, following a particular devastating year for air travel in 2014.
